I enjoyed that article when I read it too. Thanks for posting it.

This just points out one more reason why I'm a big fan and advocate of the extended 36-plus hours of near-fasting on JUDDD as opposed to some other plans that don't allow for nearly as many hours of almost totally empty tummy. While other plans allow for you to not have to go for very long without eating again.. usually at most it's a mere 22-24 hours, our plan holds us to a longer period, which I believe has it's strong benefit.

Not that the shorter periods don't do any *triggering*. I just believe the response isn't as strong. Just my thoughts...

Not sure if this was covered but has anyone read how/why SIRT's antioxidant/anti-free radical action actually helps weight loss?

Yes. There is a lot about it in Dr. J's book and I like the illustration he has of how SIRT1 builds up on DDs. There are also many articles and lots of research studies on the Internet.

SIRT1 produces a unique protein that is like a hormone. When this protein is sufficiently built up and continually being built up (takes 2 weeks or so at the beginning to have enough to really start doing it's work in some people, but begins to be activated after you restrict calories the very first time) -- IT'S JOB IS TO PREVENT FAT STORAGE IN THE BODY. It also causes existing stored fat to be released, used as energy, or processed through the kidneys and flushed away. good stuff, huh?

I have ordered "The Warrior Diet" because someone said it has a good explanation of why all this works and I always like learning more.

I had to giggle. Mice are mammals. But I admit, you made me second-guess myself and I had to look it up to be sure!

I've read the length-of-life and calorie restriction and fasting studies for years, and the wonderful thing is that this all seems to apply to every single living organism that they try this on, whether flatworms, fruit flys, mice, or monkeys or man. Woo Hoo!

I get busy and can't spend much time at my computer and fascinating info like this appears!

I am totally hooked on researching how what & how we eat effects our bodies and lives. The wonderful world of caloric restriction and those adorable little fat-demolishing sirtuin enzymes has been on the top of my list for awhile now.

Yam-Yam et al, thanks for posting!

Dottie, is there any chance this thread could get a sticky? This kind of information is so important I would hate to see it drift away.
